We went there reluctantly as the music was too loud and drove us crazy when we first arrived the island. We went to other place far away from it so we could have some peace. we told ourselves not to give them any business. The first lunch at other place was not good. by the evening the music at the...

I wouldn't book the single lumbung unless you have a very small bag. I had a big bag as I'm travelling for some time and it just fit, but it basically meant I couldn't open my bag. The mosquito net didn't really cover the whole bed and had holes in it. You also had to go downstairs to use the... More

The Exile Bar is the best place in Gili Trawangan to enjoy drinks and food with the sunset. it's right on the beach with a choice of seating in tiki tables or fluffy puuffs on the sand. The enviroment is fantastic, we had a group of bongo/drums players that made the evening great. Also the food is AMAIZING! I Had... More

We went everyday to the Exile to watch the sunset. They provide comfortable chairs, hammocks etc... and cool drinks. The people here make the atmosphere amazing. during sunset they do little djembe performance providing a nice Gili T vibe. on one occassion the djembe drumming evolved into a small beach party.... great bar that attracts the right type of visitors......

Stayed here for 2 days with 11 of my friends. For people from big city looking for perfect getaway, yet only 10 mins away from the island crowd, you're looking at the right place. Beautiful and quiet beach will be your morning view while enjoying your breakfast. Fun and energizing djembe will entertain you during sunset. Make sure you ask... More

Enjoy a cold bintang, juice or wine by watching one of the islands beautiful sunsets. Good live mucic and very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. The Exile Bar offers good Wifi and some chilled seats where you can drift away dreaming, reading or just enjoying the great sunset.

Thank you for the great Djembe drumming whilst we watched the gorgeous sunset. Great spot for a large cold bintang, lovely spring rolls and beautiful view. Really easy to get to, we were staying on main strip and hired bikes and cycled round. Only 10 mins! Best place we visited that side of Gili T!

This idyllic beachfront hideaway is perfect for getting away from the busy strip of Gili T. It has the best sunset view on the island, with beach beanbags and usually live djembe drum soundtrack. The rooms are gorgeous individual thatched wooden huts, with beautiful bathrooms - you can shower looking up at the stars! The staff are friendly and helpful.... More
